CPAP Replacement Schedule
CPAP machine filters are a consumable item, they should be checked regularly and replaced about every 3 months or more often if they look dirty. We stock a large range of ResMed, Philips, Fisher & Paykel CPAP Filters for your convenience.
Cushions & Seals
Mask parts such as the mask cushion are prone to over time discolour, deteriorate and tear. The silicone cushion is delicate, so be careful, particularly when pulling it apart and washing it that you treat it gently, so you do not tear it. Most people should get at least 6 months usage before having to replace these silicone parts. See our Cushion & Seal Replacements in our store.
Most people get at least 6 months out of a headgear, however over time they do begin to stretch and you will find that you need to keep tightening the mask to make it fit comfortably. Stretched headgear is not only uncomfortable, but can lead to increase red marks and irritation on your face and should be updated regularly to ensure optimum comfort. See our Headgear category here, or find your mask and view the Replacement Parts tab.
Most frames and elbows are made of a durable hard plastic, we have found unless you are unfortunate enough to sit on it and break it, it should last at least 1 year. See our Replacement CPAP Frames here.
You should get about 12 months from your CPAP tubing. The Short Mask Tube (if applicable to your mask type) and the Long Breathing Tube, with daily usage can also both stretch and deteriorate over time. The key thing to check for here is it that there are no holes in the tubing, where air can escape and detriment your treatment. View our range of CPAP Masks & Machine Tubing here.
If you are requiring more than one component the 12 month mark may be a great time to refresh or update your mask.
